Almost Home


After almost a year of duty in Iraq, my younger brother is on his way home. In less than 24 hours, he will be reunited with his new wife and making plans to see the rest of us. It has been a long year, but somehow now it seems to have flown by. I'm not sure if he sees it the same way - I'll have to ask when I talk to him. As he comes home, my thoughts and prayers go to the troops that are now being deployed in his unit's place. May God protect them and their families.
